What was your breaking point with Android?

For me, it was the ever present lag even on flagship models and custom compiled ROMs. I finally realized it was a problem with the core OS and server kernel itself and there was no hope of getting rid of it.

Why do Macbooks feel so...premium? Everything from the beautiful Retina display, to the smooth integration with iOS devices, and an amazing UNIX OS such as macOS Big Sur. Macbooks also have world class build quality and customer support that no stinkpad can match. They may have a high price tag but you really do get what you pay for.
